Review:

The Most Beautiful Villages Of The Dordogne is a visual tour-de-force of the "Perigord" region of France with its evocative, descriptive text and its 258 full-color, breathtakingly beautiful illustrations. The Dordogne offers splendid scenery, exquisite food and wine, the finest examples of prehistoric art and some of the most enchanting villages of France. Readers will discover villages of widely contrasting appeal and interest: in the north are gems such as Brantome with its fine abbey and ancient houses gracing the banks of the river Dronne. Further south, among the undulating hills and warm limestone valleys of the white Dordogne are villages such as Hautefort, crouching beneath the twin pepper-pot towers of its chateau. Gastronomy and the artifacts of prehistory distinguish the villages of the two southernmost areas. Other sties such as Les Eyzies, harbor some of the best prehistoric cave paintings in the world, while the ancient fortified towns of Montfort and Monpazier recall the struggles of the Middle Ages. Complete with a traveler's gazetteer and further information about the region, The Most Beautiful Villages Of The Dordogne is a magnificent presentation of the Dordogne's small towns and villages demonstrating the qualities that attract so many visitors every year. The Most Beautiful Villages Of The Dordogne is an armchair traveler's dream! James Bentley's talents as an experienced travel writer are manifest. Hugh Palmer's photography is arresting, as he shares his artist's eye through the camera's lens and gives the reader a multiplicity of memorable visions. The Most Beautiful Villages Of The Dordogne is the ideal coffee-table book and will inspire many a reader to trod those Dordogne roads themselves. -- Midwest Book Review
